Re: Keyboard alternate characters
This may happen because of various reasons.
Your laptop may be equipped with a program installed by your laptop's
manufacturer, enabling these keys with a preset key combination you may
have inadvertendly accessed.
Laptops often also have two keyboard layouts installed, switching between
these two usually happens by holding the Ctrl key, and then pressing the
Shift key once.
You can test this behaviour by typing in notepad to see if Ctrl+Shift
layout switching is enabled on your machine.
Also check with your laptop's manufacturer.
